reversed their pledge to take up in emergency aid bill this week for states devastated by superstorm sandy. the move potentially leaves the $60 billion aid package to die at the end of the legislative session on thursday. the house was expected to consider the bill today, but dropped it following lengthy talks on the fiscal cliff. the decision drew harsh condemnation from both sides of the aisle. republican congressmember michael grimm of staten island, one of the areas hardest hit by city, said -- democratic congressmember jerry nadler of new york city blasted his colleagues for failing to take urgent action. >> hurricane sandy struck on october 29. nine weeks ago. it is unprecedented that it takes so long. i can understand -- i would not sympathize -- but i can understand with members to my said the amount requested is too much, we should change it, debate it. fine. but to ignore it? to ignore the plight of millions of american citizens? unprecedented, disgusting, unworthy of the leadership of this house. they should reconsider or hang their heads in shame, mr. speaker. >> president obam

leaders to end the congressional session without voting on an aid bill for victims of superstorm sandy. new york republican peter king said the decision was indefensible. maryland democrat steny hoyer said he was deeply disappointed. last friday the senate approved a $60.4 billion sandy relief meetings. the house appropriations committee drafted a smaller bill. a vote by the full house hasn't been expected before the body recessed. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton is still in a new york hospital getting treated for that blood clot. doctors found the clot in a vein behind her right ear. the 65-year-old clinton did not suffer any stroke or brain damage. she's expected to make a full recovery. doctors familiar with this type of clot say it is unlikely that it developed as a side effect of her recent concussion when she fell at her home. secretary clinton was also treated for a blood clot back in the 1990's when she was first lady. that one was in her leg. >>> you may kiss your spouse. that's the phrase that will be used more and more in maryland now, now that same-sex marriage is le
after superstorm sandy will have to keep waiting. good morning, ip aaron gilchrist. >> imt eun yang. let's take a live look outside right now. about 4:59. cold start. 37 degrees. you said you saw flurries. >> just one or two o maybe coming down. let's check in with meteorologist tom kierein to see what you can expect today, tom. >> i saw number three and number four. very few flurries trying to reach the ground on this cold 2nd day of january. starting off with a lot of cloudiness. the areas south and east of washington, the pink color, they're getting a few sprinkles and flurries mixed in. that's in southern calvert county, across st. mary's, into the northern neck of virginia. southern part of the eastern shore getting flurries right now. there's another batch of flurries trying to reach the ground in montgomery county across the potomac into northern fairfax and southeastern loudoun county. this is all drifting off to the east and we're going to have a little sunshine breaking out later this morning as cold air continues to come in on an increasingly blustery north wind later today.
officials that hit the ground when superstorm sandy hit explained that if you didn't get money into the hands of these small businesses almost immediately, then most likely they would go under. if you don't start rebuilding right away, people start to become depressed and they lose hope. let's not even discuss the economic impact. so to delay this vote even for another day is something that will resonate not only with the people that have been affected and are suffering and have lost everything, but i think it will resonate with the american people for a long time, and i think it will make them wonder what we are here for and what is the role of the federal government, what is the role of the congress, and maybe most importantly, can they trust us? so it is with a heartfelt apology that i apologize to my constituents, to my fellow new yorkers in need, those in new jersey, connecticut, and pennsylvania. i did all that i could. i will not stop, i will not relent, and i will continue to push for this vote to come as quickly as possible, but there is no rhyme or reason and it is in
the victims of superstorm sandy. lawmakers are angry because the republican house leadership ended the session without voting on that sandy bill. >> we're told we'll get a bill on the floor later this month in the next congress. it's already nine weeks. it's already an unprecedented length of time and why? new york and pennsylvania and new jersey, those residents -- are those residents any leisureses than other parts of the country -- are those residents any less residents than other parts of the country? >>> the deal to avert the fiscal cliff appears to be good news for hollywood. the legislation extends millions of dollars in tax incentives for the entertainment industry, through the end of the year. producers of movies made here in the u.s. can deduct up to $15 million in expenses. those incentives were generous for tv producers who can claim deductions for each episode. >>> experts are predicting a shortage of primary care doctors in california and across the country. as the population gets colder, and they also say that the affordal care act could strain access to primary care physicians.
to vote on a relief package for victims of superstorm sandy. senator schumer called it heartless. why was there a reverse? >> the reverse came about basically the same i call them chuckleheads and i'll call them chuckleheads again, the same chuckleheads that jet ison planned b a week ago said the $60 billion or 27 and 33 isn't paid for and because it's not paid for we're not going to do anything about it. i guess they don't have tvs in their homes and they haven't seen the suffering on staten island and coastal new jersey. it doesn't make any sense to me. an emergency is an emergency. these are americans who are suffering. we should have had the vote and i talked to the speaker in the cloak room at 11:00 last night. he says he's going to take care of it quickly. i hope he does. because this is another example of people just not getting it. >> congressman steve latourrette thank you for being with us. >>> the dow has gained over 200 points since the opening. rebecca jarvis says the relief may not last that long. >> good morning. >> the markets liked this at first. >
and new york who went through this hideous, this horrible superstorm sandy and now don't have the relief and congress goes home? >> well, you're absolutely right. it is incomprehensible. you're right. in vermont we suffered, and now in new jersey and new york people are suffering. but as you know, we passed an emergency relief program, disaster relief program, for sandy. we passed it in the senate. >> i know you did. >> our republican friends in the house chose not to do with it -- to deal with that issue, and i think that is a real tragedy. >> senator, thanks for joining us today. again, happier 2013 to you. >> happy new year to you as well. >> thanks. >>> stocks are soaring, first trading day of the new year, the market is buoyed by a better than expected report. joining me, ruth marcus, also greg yip. welcome both. the markets just reacting to this last-minute deal? other fundamentals that you are looking at? >> mostly it is the deal. the deal does three things that the markets are happy about, number one, taxes in the new year, number two, removes some of the uncertainty about fiscal
to which he's referring, that could be a failure to vote on a relief package for superstorm sandy. the vote was abruptly pulled back by speaker boehner last night delaying the bill until the 113th congress which convenes tomorrow. gop leadership apparently determined the house shouldn't even try for $60.4 billion in new spending on a night it added $4 trillion to the deficit. and congressman king is not the only one outraged that politics took precedence over people. >> republicans in congress brought this house to a new low last night. >> we're all hit hard enough with the recession. on top of that now we have to deal with the anxiety and the failure of congress to act. >> talk to the people. look into their eyes. understand their needs. come walk with me, mr. speaker. >> this is time to stop debating and take the gloves off. jersey style. >> and speaking of jersey style, governor chris christie came out swinging this afternoon. >> shame on you. shame on congress. on a political chess board of internal palace intrigue politics, our people were played last night as a pawn. and that's why pe

: is the plight of victims of superstorm sandy suffered another setback, setting off blistering criticism of boehner. >> because there was a betrayal. we cannot believe this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> how can we treat an entire regionen of the country this way? this is the most disgraceful action i have seen in this house in the 20 years i've been here. >> reporter: even though some complained about the double standard for sandy victims, especially compared to victims of catrino who received aid within two weeks. while it's been two months and still counting since sandy. >> absolutely absurd. we demand nothing less than we have geffen the rest of the country. >> reporter: a blasting of bain el went beyond the hall of congress and from fellow republicans like governor christie. >> there's only one group to complain for the continued suffering. the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> reporter: others in sandy's path also weighed in. >> disappointed they couldn't come to a conclusion and pass the bill. >> reporter: in a statement from the white hou
is promising a vote on a bill that would provide relief for the victims of superstorm sandy as early as friday. this new effort comes after a day of sharp such from both sides of the aisle. democrats and republicans are upset that boehner decided last night to pull a vote on the $60 billion bill. they say the money is needed right now, but people are hurting. the storm rallied today, but they are signs that investors erelief may not last long. fights over the debt ceiling and budget are looming. >> those looming aspects of the crisis such as sequestration have a major impact on virginia. david culver reports that even lawmakers in the same party can agree on the best action to take. >> reporter: we spoke with two democratic congressmen from northern virginia. nomarally they vote the same on big issues, but when it comes to this fiscal cliff legislation, they were on opposite side both democrats, both representing northern virginia, but on this issue of the fiscal cliff, they did not great. congressman connolly voting for the legislation. >> this was not a very solution-oriented congress, but t

the aid relief package for those struggling in the aftermath of superstorm sandy. the congress will close without that legislation being handled. the senate had approved a package of $60.4 billion in aid and the house appropriations committee came up with a smaller deal of about $27 billion. but since the laws don't carry over from session to session now we're going to have to start all over again. house speaker john boehner's office says he is committed to passing that aid before the end of the month but that, of course, does nothing for people who need the money right now. and just before the break president obama nominated senator john kerry to succeed hillary clinton when she decides to step down. that will leave an opening in the senate. many people think scott brown who lost to elizabeth warren in november will run again but there's new concern amongst democrats that brown instead may try to run for governor. that's another option for him. see if he runs against representative ed markey and loses, that would pu
